ncweddings Ladies Morning
with Dr Ledivia and Rolene Strauss 2019


Annually ncweddings.co.za strives to keep their concept fresh and current by means of hosting a ladies function with handpicked guest speakers. This year we were thankful to host a total of 400 ladies streaming to Naftali Estate to enjoy guest speakers Dr Ledivia and Rolene Strauss.


The morning kicked off with delicious starters, a mimosa bar complementing Orange River Cellars sponsored and delicious Lyra range of sparkling wines as well as a freshly served coffee bar presented by Saddles Coffee Bar & Grill. Ladies booked their seats, curiously opened their superb Kalahari Desert Secrets gift bags filled with goods from various vendors, and roamed the exhibition area or greeted the majestic Naftali Estate Horses.

ncweddings.co.za is extremely grateful for various vendors and suppliers who annually take hands to make this event possible. Sanlam kicked off the morning with a short hello, where after Inoar told us more about their range of amazing hair care products available at Happy Hair in Upington. We blessed the ladies with numerous valuable lucky draw prizes as we waited to greet the guest speakers arriving in style with Peu Bezuidenhout on horse carriage. The ladies absolutely loved this part of the mornings program.

Dr Ledivia gave valuable insight into how women can care for her nutrition and take care in looking after what and when she eats, relevant to our day and age. Dr Rolene shared personal experience and encouraged all women to be sunflower farmers and live our lives encouraging others to bloom. After a resourceful Q and A session we ended the morning off with a delicious lunch, socializing around the exhibition area.

ncweddings.co.za strives to bring the beauty of the Northern Cape to the front and this is made so much easier because of enthusiastic sponsors who take our hands and go out of their way to help. We would like to thank each and every person or business.
